English language learners in Hillsboro, Ore., perform below federal, state standards
from The Oregonian
Each year, the federal government expects more and more English language learners in public schools to demonstrate proficiency in English. But the number of such students who met federal targets in Hillsboro, Ore., schools has fallen. Data released by the Oregon Department of Education Thursday morning shows that school districts across the state are not just struggling to meet federal English proficiency targets that get tougher every year; the percentage of students meeting the standards is actually decreasing. And Hillsboro's English language learners perform well under state averages.
